Mayim Bialik: Being a Feminist in Harvey Weinstein’s World
OCT. 13, 2017 | The New York Times | By MAYIM BIALIK, cast member of “The Big Bang Theory”.

..Mayim Bialik decided that her sexual self is best reserved for private situations with those she was most intimate with. She dresses modestly. She doesn’t act flirtatiously with men as a policy.........we can change our culture, but it won’t be something that happens overnight. We live in a society that has treated women as disposable playmates for far longer than Mr. Weinstein has been meeting ingénues in luxury hotel rooms.

One major bright spot: We are seeing more women taking on prominent roles behind the camera. hard to encourage young women to cultivate the parts of themselves that may not garner them money and fame. If you are beautiful and sexy, terrific. But having others celebrate your physical beauty is not the way to lead a meaningful life.

And if — like me — you’re not a perfect 10, know that there are people out there who will find you stunning, irresistible and worthy of attention, respect and love. The best part is you don’t have to go to a hotel room or a casting couch to find them.

As Germany Welcomes Migrants, Sexual Attacks in Cologne Point to a New Reality - The New York Times

In early December, the Cologne police made their New Year’s Eve preparations. Drawing on the previous year’s experience, they identified their biggest worry as pickpocketing and fireworks among the crowds. So they increased their holiday deployment, to 142 from 88, ...As 2016 neared on Dec. 31, however, some 1,500 men, including some newly arrived asylum seekers and many other immigrants, had instead assembled around Cologne’s train station. Drunk and dismissive of the police, they took advantage of an overwhelmed force to sexually assault and rob hundreds of people, according to police reports, shocking Germany and stoking anxieties over absorbing refugees across Europe....police reports and the testimony of officials and victims suggest that the officers failed to anticipate the new realities of a Germany that is now host to up to a million asylum seekers, most from war-torn Muslim countries unfamiliar with its culture. Working from outdated expectations, the police made a series of miscalculations that, officials acknowledge, allowed the situation to deteriorate. At the same time, both the police and victims say, it was not a situation any of them had encountered before. This was new terrain for all....But the commanding officer at the scene declined an offer of more than 80 reinforcements, who could have been in Cologne in an hour, according to Bernd Heinen, a senior police official, who criticized the commander for failing throughout the night to look ahead and anticipate a worsening situation....

Poonam carries on. “Girls like us, if we take the opportunity given to us, we can become educated and get those jobs as teachers and nurses. It all depends on what you do with the chance you’re given. It used to be only for those others. Now, we also have that opportunity, if we take it. What used to be possible only for them is possible for us also.”

Nafissatou Diallo Sues Strauss-Kahn -
Published: August 8, 2011
The hotel housekeeper who has accused Dominique Strauss-Kahn of sexually
assaulting her has sued him in State Supreme Court in the Bronx. ...The
timing of the lawsuit was unusual for cases that also involve criminal
prosecutions; typically, accusers will wait until a criminal matter is
resolved before proceeding with a civil action. ...A lawyer for the
housekeeper, Nafissatou Diallo, indicated in court papers that he was
prepared to introduce testimony from other women who say they were
attacked by Mr. Strauss-Kahn in “hotel rooms around the world,” and in
apartments specifically used by him “for the purpose of covering up his
